We’ve recently heard a number of rumors about Microsoft’s upcoming Surface tablets. The company was expected to make the announcement later this year but today it sent out press invites for an event scheduled on September 23rd in New York City, where it will formally announce the new Surface tablets. Purported specifications of Surface Pro 2 have already been rumored, today we’re treated to the specifications that the entry level Surface 2 tablet is expected to tout.
First up, and this was rumored a few months back as well, it is expected that Microsoft will drop the “RT” brand moniker for Surface 2, even though it is going to run Windows 8.1 RT. It was also previously rumored that next generation Microsoft tablet might have a NVIDIA processor. It is believed that the Surface 2 will have a NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM. A full HD 1080p display has also been rumored. An integrated two-position kickstand is apparently the only major design change, the tablet is expected to look similar to the existing Surface. Rumor has it that Microsoft will make the Surface 2 tablet available in white color as well. After the announcement takes place on September 23rd, Microsoft is expected to release the new tablets by mid-October.
